On the auspicious occasion of Dusshera, Neil Nitin Mukesh got engaged to Mumbai-based Rukminni Sahay. Neil was introduced to Rukmini by his parents. It is an arranged marriage.

Rukmini is based in Mumbai and she belongs to the family of aviation industry. The two families have known each other for a long time. Rukmini has studied aviation in Aurangabad and takes special interest in environment and education.

“Rukmini is based in Mumbai, and she and Neil have been dating for a month after their parents arranged the match. Neil chose to have an arranged marriage because he is 'old school when it comes to marriage', revealed his father Nitin Mukesh.

Neil speaks high about his wife, "I think she (Rukmini) is just perfect. She is the perfect balance that any man would want in his woman. She is simple, beautiful, loving and all the awesome adjectives I can think of. She fits them all”.

Neil also spoke about his chemistry with Rukmini: "Our chemistry is outstanding. She understands that I am a little bit of a prankster. I have a habit of joking around and sometimes people don't understand my jokes. They might get offended sometimes, but she instantly understood the kind of person I am and laughed at every point."

Neil's parents Nitin Mukesh and Nishi Mukesh is quite impressed by Rukmini's simplicity and upbringing. Nitin Mukesh said, "She reflects the values and traditions that Neil has been raised with and complements him in every way possible. The celebrations to the final countdown have already begun."

After marriage, Neil and Rukmini have no plans to move out of the Mukesh residence. "I am not moving out. I have got a new house. It just coincidentally happened to be that - Dussehra, housewarming and this (engagement). I am definitely not moving out. My father and mother won't allow me too... and I don't want that to happen," said Neil.

Congratulations to Neil and Rukmini!
